    One lonely sale for Saturday, at 9:00 AM. Did CJ's tracking servers get trashed by the MS SQL worm by chance?

    If you didn't try visiting your site/s yesterday I suggest checking your host's status board if they have one. I was missing a chunk load of traffic which never made it to CJ but I found out the worm had trashed my host, and it's only just been fixed.

    Lousy Saturday for me.

    I could get to my sites okay, but whether anyone else could is debatable.

    Since Fryday only reversals and no single sale. If it is not getting better, I will not reach threshold for one of my account.

    I had good sales throughout Saturday -- it ended up being my best Sat. ever, in fact.

    Saturday one of my lowest ever and today not so great. Maybe that worm is getting them.

    Way below normal Sat.

    Good 'ol Microsoft and their security holes.
    Even Bank of America's site was down due the SQL Server worm.

    Saturday was OK but what the heck happened Sunday? The same or better click throughs but not one single transaction? Never happened before with this many click throughs.

    It has been this way for me for about a week. Traffic is up but sales are way down to one a day from a previous average of about 20 a day. I was thinking along the lines of scumware, thiefware, spyware being responsible.

    You all must have gotten the bad luck of the draw and got on that quirky tracking server at CJ this weekend. I can't believe I'm saying this, as I usually do poorly when this type of thing is posted, but I had a great weekend at CJ and had my very best Sunday ever.

    I feel for you all. I've been there several times scratching my head wondering why the bottom had fallen out of the sales. Hope it gets better soon for you.

    Ok Ron,

    Give them weekend sales back to the rightful owner, ME! WTG Ron! I know your stuck on my server a lot!

    Actually I am just swinging by this thread looking for some Coincidences after a very so-so weekend with CJ. Saturday was pitiful, yesterday wasn't as bad but definately not good. I sure hope today picks up.

    Analysis of my Counter and Statistics Tracker
    results versus what CJ is reporting leads to the conclusion that one of them is sick.
    My Counter and Statistics Tracker has always been reliable and correlated highly with CJ
    until about a week ago.
    Hopefully CJ's illness is not terminal.

    Sales are ok I think however there may be a total data discrepency problem.

    Where is the CJ spokesperson - need to address this.

    I'm not sure if it's related to the worm, but I've seen impressions drop considerably since late Friday night. Sales have been about normal.

    The corelation for my links versus sales is also very good. So I understand what you all are saying. I've had 36 hour stretches with no sales while link are higher than normal. You just know something is wrong, but CJ just looks at their overall stats and tells you thinks are okie dokie. I have a hard time accepting that anymore. I really do believe there is a tracking issue that needs to be resolved, but due to the sheer volume of data going through CJ's tracking server, I doubt anyone (including CJ) could ever find the problem.

    Hang in there everyone. We are all on the CJ roller coaster....some of you are on the dip while the rest of us are heading up the hill. Pretty soon you will be at the top and we will be heading down for the next dip.

    Okay, now it is my turn to complain. I must be on the downward dip of the CJ tracking roller coaster.

    I have a merchant that that has sales every day and a EPC of $16.00 for the month. Not a single sale yesterday and all CJ sales way, way down from normal.

    I should learn never to brag here about my sales being good. When will I learn.

    My stats have also been odd. Usually my EPC is 7.00 and Sat was 1.00 and yesterday 3.00. I called CJ and they said no one else has called on it being a problem. Maybe it would be good if a few other people called???


    On another note, I'm wondering how to tell which CJ merchants are assoc with parasites? Is there a list somewhere? I'd like to check mine. Thanks.

    It's no doubt a roller coaster month, and good that my heart beat doesn't look like my sales graph.

    Last Thursday was the worst day of the month, I was almost depressed that day. Friday was a pleasant surprise. Saturday was slower than usual. Sunday, SuperBowl Day, turned out to be a h*ll of a GREAT day. Monday was ok. Today looks promising. Tomorrow is another day.

    Just some comparative figures:

    EPC for today: 5.50
    EPC for yesterday: 8.08
    EPC for this month: 8.77

    These have not yet taken into account for reversals which is around 20%

    EPC for last month: 10.41
    EPC for last year: 8.16

    Figures are net which shows that January is way down.

    He he! I just noticed the cry baby fella! Must of been added just for me

    Well I am gonna moan and cry. Click throughs today are at record levels today. Sales are pitiful though. Unfortunately not just with CJ but all around. Why all the window shopping today? Nights have been good lately for me, hopefully tonight will save the day once again.

    At least underwear are selling! Thanks Akiva! I might be sending you a PM in the next day or 2 about an idea I have going on in my head.
